Lots of families have enjoyed multiple holidays in lodges over the years and holiday parks have been a very popular place to stay for decades now. It isn’t uncommon for people to dream of owning their own holiday lodge one day too and it goes without saying that when you retire is the perfect time to buy a lodge that you can visit as frequently as you like. 


In fact, many who own a lodge will end up living here full-time once they retire and leisure home living has never been more popular than it is today. There are so many reasons why people choose to swap holidaying in lodges for living in their very own holiday lodge and below we have explored some of the most compelling benefits to buying a lodge when you retire.  


Join a community of like-minded people


So many holiday parks are mainly occupied by the over 50’s and these parks will be a peaceful community in which to live. When buying a lodge, you will be joining lots of like-minded people at the park and you can experience the desirable ‘village lifestyle’. It is likely that your neighbours will soon become friends when you spend the majority of your time at the holiday park too and you can enjoy the company of the other residents.


Enjoy the carefree lifestyle


Living on a holiday park really does provide a lifestyle that you can’t get anywhere else and every day will feel like a holiday. Having worked for so many years, when you retire you want to be able to truly relax and start enjoying life to the fullest, and there is no better place to do so than on a holiday park. Buying a lodge can turn your carefree lifestyle dreams into a reality.  


Reduce your overheads 


Should you want to sell your family home and downsize, buying a holiday lodge is a brilliant alternative to buying a bungalow, for example. All lodges come fully furnished, preventing any upfront fit-out costs and generally speaking, your maintenance costs will be much lower when you’re living in a lodge too. You may find that you have a considerable amount of capital that you can use to enjoy your retirement when selling your home and buying a lodge too. 


Make use of the on-site facilities 


Lots of holiday parks have a range of different on-site facilities that you will have access to when you buy a lodge. Everything you need will be conveniently located close to your lodge and you won’t ever have to go without. Not to mention, holiday parks tend to be well-located in the undulating countryside too and there will be an abundance of different local walks to go on. 


Spend time with family and friends


Entertaining family and friends couldn’t be easier when you own a holiday lodge and you can invite people to come and stay with you as and when you wish. Lodges are available in all shapes and sizes, and you won’t struggle to find a lodge that has a spacious living area and a spare bedroom, to accommodate all of your entertaining needs. There really are so many exciting group holiday possibilities for your loved ones when you buy a holiday lodge.
